The Olafsson Family in the Dakotas

It is known, however, that our langafi and langamma (great grandparents) lived in the United States for a time after their emigration from Iceland.┬áBerglaug and Tryggvi lived in North Dakota for several years. Three of their daughters (Olena, Abigael and Asdis) were born in the Dakotas. The 1935 Almanack also states that Tryggvi lived at Grafton, North Dakota ” where he lived for 10 years and worked at common labour.” Around 1890, however, the Olafssons emigrated from the Dakotas to Manitoba, Canada.
